So, my last test is done. The log playing the very same mkv file as before from my NAS share mounted via fstab: https://paste.osmc.tv/dudadojoti
It generated 112 skips and 1 drop. So, no change at all. From my side, I think, I have done all I can to demonstrate the issue… It definitely is a network playback issue. This issue wasn’t there before and is quite a downer for the overall usability of my Vero 4k.
As the issue hasn’t been there in the past, my network hasn’t changed at all, other users like @MikeDelta seem to have the same issue and the behaviour of when skips occur are not correlating with usage of the NAS at all and the read and write speeds (~90-100MB/s and ~30-35MB/s) of the NAS are constantly high, I can’t see any reason why this issue wouldn’t be related to the Vero 4k itself.
Hope, it can be fixed! If I can be of any more help, plz tell me and I will help…
@MikeDelta The way I mounted via fstab is this:
- add this line to /etc/fstab (change permissions first or write via sudo command/admin ssh login; replace “…” with the according info, delete “” afterwards)
//“IP of share”/media /mnt/media cifs x-systemd.automount,noauto,iocharset=utf8,user,username=“username of share”,password=“password of share”,uid=osmc,gid=osmc,iocharset=utf8,file_mode=0770,dir_mode=0770 0 0
- create folders in /mnt according to what you entered in the fstab file before (the /mnt/media part)
- reboot system and access videos via the /mnt/media path (e.g. by adding that path to the video library)
